Winter Death Count

Officials have once again bumped up the death count resulting from the February ice and snow storms that rocked much of Southern Middle Tennessee. The Tennessee Emergency management Agency says a 55-year-old man living in Bledsoe County died over the weekend due to hypothermia. That jumps the overall fatality count statewide from 29 to 30. At least 11 of the deaths were attributed to exposure, including the death of an elderly Lynchburg man who died while trying to keep warm with a small space heater. Other victims died in house fires, car crashes or other issues linked with the bad weather.
